20 Quid a Month and We're Watching...


The Poseidon Adventure!!!!!!! I don't know about you but I am on the lookout for something, anything at tonight to watch on the tellybox. It would appear that the people who sell us our telly programming don't actually want us to enjoy our Saturday evening at home.

Unfortunately, the residents of Chateau Mac are not really disposed to the typical Saturday funtime activities that may be on offer to adults in 2006. (S0me of them are not actually adults - but don't tell Patrick). According to a friend of mine and to a apply his comment to my own life, "it's not all parties and poppers!" Damn straight it isn't!

Anyway, we've decided to introduce the boys to the epic that is an Irwin Allen disaster flick. The thing is that they have already started to watch the Airplane movies so they've seen the farcical side of this genre, now we need to show them where it all came from in the first place.

Think of us when you're dropping your first 'E' tonight or stumbling home, evening's conquest in tow....some of us are watching The Poseidon Adventure.

I think we may be worse than you because all we have is BBC prime....or of course, RTL or SF! - where it feels like a 1970's version of the Eurovision song contest all night. I did take a nurofen for a headache, so I don't know if that almost counts as dropping an e.....

Oh, there supposed to be something called life beyond parties and poppers?

It's a shame there wasn't a '70s disaster marathon featuring "Towering Inferno" and "Earthquake" as well...

Or a '90s disaster marathon featuring Twin Towers, a Tsunami and a Trashing of the Tube & Transport...
